We started Book the First while in Milwaukee -- it was a giveaway in the Country Inn & Suites book-exchange program -- and Kate finished it on the ride home. She was mightily impressed, as was I. Tim Curry should have gotten Jim Carrey's job.

Galway Kennell - ah hahahahahha!

I think that books 4-6 should be combined into a movie, then 7-9, then 10-13. the last four are the most informative and important.


I can assure you that it is NOT the Galaway Kennell. One. Where is the clue in the picture at the end of Book the Eleventh? and Two. The Next Book Will Be about the Hotel Denouement. I know this because at the back of book 11, there a bell boy's cap in the sand that says "Hoetl D" and i have found out that this "D" stands for Denouement. Thanx.


Oh!... and it should be coming out October 2005 sometime. Thanx.


I know when A Series of Unfortunate Events, Book the Twelfth is coming out. It is going to be in hardcover sometime in the middle of October, 2005. At least that is when it is coming out at Barnes & Noble. That is pretty much all I know so far. I will try to keep posting more info as soon as I can.


The twelfth book is coming out October 18th/November12th and the title is called The Tumbling Towers as far as I know and by the way, Lemony Snicket is really Daniel Handler. Daniel
Handler calls himself Lemony Snicket because he doesn't want his enemies to know his true identity, I heard an interview with him a few weeks ago and I heard that book the thirteenth will come out next year. By the way, I researched VFD and as far as I know it is Volunteer Fire Department.






I think the 12th book is coming out on the 18th of october 2005
fun fact lemony snickets real mane is daniel handler!
th last book may be called the vicious virtory or the frightening finish.


The 12th book is not The Vicious Victory because the seventh book is the Vile Village and Daniel Handler [aka Lemony Snicket] always changes the beggining letter of the title so it might be The
Marvolouse Mansion or The Determined Defeat


I think the thirteenth book is called The Fabulous Fortune when Count Olaf gets the fortune
and defeats the Baudelaires because after all Daniel Handler did say that there would be no happy beginning and no happy ending and a few happy things in the middle. Also I heard an interview with him and he said that the Baudelaires have no happy ending or maybe Count Olaf will be locked in jail but the Baudelaire children/orphans will find out that their parent
are dead

When is Bambi coming out?

Kirstie Wood

I didn't mean to say that, when is Bambi and the great prince of the forest coming out?


Which books have you read recently and enjoyed?



I'm Mr Mannion and this is my website. I'm glad you're all having fun talking about my sons' favorite series of books. I put this post up in November and it's been a long time since it's shown up on my page, so I can't always police the comments section here. A very rude person showed up yesterday, and I deleted his comments and banned him from the site.

Everybody leaving comments on a website should be as kind and polite as the Baudelaires themselves.

If you read any comments that upset you, don't acknowledge them or answer back. Email me and let me know and I will take care of it.


I know when the 13th book is coming out, it's coming out 2006 but I don't know which month


The picture at the back of the Grim Grotto is the small bubbly thing- it's the airship. I think the twelfth book has something to do with the airship thing. Also in the Eleventh book at the end it says, "...turning the tables of their lives and breaking the unfortunate cycle for the very first time." So something happy is going to happen.


Maybe something happy will happen in the twelth book but the way I see it the 12th book is not the end of the series and also Daniel Handler [aka Lemony Snicket] said that the 13th book might not be the end of the series and after all
he did say in an interview on the internet that he hasn't finished researching the lives of the Baudelaires and that there might still be more information he hasn't found. Also I emailed him asking him all the questions I wanted to know but Daniel Handler sent an email back to me saying that he can't tell me because it would be much to dangerous for me to know even if he told me in secret.


I agree with Callum


what is the 12th book called, and when is it coming out


i completely agree with the person who said that tim curry should have been count olaf. jim carrey kind of...over did it.

not sayin my name on line

Is it true that the 12th book is called the Heinous Hotel. I also herard its coming out in october. I can't wait til' then.


The 12th book of series of unfortunate events is calld:The Toumbling Towers.It comes out October18,2005!.

I'm pretty sure.


At the end of th 11th book there is a hat that says hotel D(wich stands for denouncement).and if you look above the beach ball you see a self subtaining hot air mobile that duncan and isadora are in.the 12th book is about hotel D and finding the quagmires(isadora and duncan)also if beatiice is mrs.baudalar then the survivor is the dad lemony snicket and that is how he is writing the tales!!!some times i think the storys are real!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!there ar going to be 13 books.i think this because 13 is an un-lucky#!!!that is why tere are 13 chapters in each book!!!i think count olaf will get their fourtion because L.S. said that the books start un-happy,have a few happy things in the middle ,and end got this from HARDIHARHAR


on a website it said"a book a year" danial handler(aka lemony snicket).So that means that hes been writng sense 1993!!!!thats a long time


Beatrice is Ms Baudelaire but Lemony Snicket didn't get married to Beatrice and Lemony Snicket is not the father


the 12th book is coming out october 18th and the books going to be called the heinuos hotel. maybe you guys didn't notice but in the last picture of every book there's a hint. like in the first one there's a snake in the the 11th one there is a hat on the beach that says hotel d. that means the title or the book is going to have hotel in it.


Also lemony snicket and daniel handler aren't the same guy.


Beatrice is not the mother of the three baudelaire children. and lemony did get married to her they just have't come up in the story yet. in case you haven't noticed but it said that beatrice is dead. but it also said that one of their parents might be alive yet it said the father will never rise. which leaves the mother.


i still don't get about v.f.d. if you have anything you want to tell me about it please contact me at [email protected]


Lets talk about Harry Potter, did you know that Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire's coming out in November 18th and the trailer's coming out in May. Also during the premier of Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets the people who take part in the film are going to show us clips and trailers of the GOF and there are going to be interviews with cast members. Check the proggramme out on May 7th 2005 at7/600pm Saturday.


The hat on the beach that said Hotel D says Hotel Denouncement.

what's it to you?

Some of the people on here are saying that book the twelfth is going to be called "The Vicious Victory" but it's the twelfth book, and the thirteen ends it all. Plus Lemony Snicket already used V, and he already used H, too - for people who think it's "The Heinous Hotel."

I'm pretty sure it does have something to do with the hotel though. We'll just have to see in October!


what does him already using H in one of his books have to do with anything. And if your sooooo smart than whats it going to be called. exactly non of us know. Also i'm going to laugh so hard at you if it turns out to be the heinous hotel. sorry i'm getting mad here but you don't know what it's going to be called. so if someone has a guess of what it's going to be called then don't go off telling them it's wrong because YOU DON'T KNOW.

hello (melissa)

i cant wait til the twelfth and thirteenth books come out! is it true that Count olaf will get the baudelaire fortune, Quagmire sapphires and the Widdershins fortune? what happens to the Widdershins sibblings (Fiona and the hook-handed man who's name is Fernald)?

the widdershins are my favourite characters. i don't know....a poet and a mycologist. kind of neat...wat happens to them? are they rich? in the eleventh book olaf said that he was going to get the widdershins fortune. are they rich?

oh...and where on earth is captain widdershins and that optimist named phil?

Tristan Vanech

Who are Lemony Snicket's parents? Who are the Baudelaire's parents.

You have a lot of info, but where's the hint in book number 6?


I'm really sorry but I don't have the 6th book. I have all of them except 5,6,7. I would get them but i'm broke. if you have any other questions than i'd be happy to answer them. And also to what's it to you i'm sorry I was getting so mad.


The next book, no one knows. It's NOT called the Henious Hotel, it may be Hotel D, although Hotel D will be very much involved with book 12. I belive it was going to be called the Tumbling Tower??

It's coming out October 18 2005.

The thing with Beatrice being the mother and Lemony Snicket being the father, research might have gone way to your head, or thats just a simple theory.

Daniel Handler does have a wife, whcih he mentions in an interview.

Need any more information, you could probably e-mail me, [email protected]


I just want to know how you know that it's not going to be the heinous hotel. but it could be called the tumbling tower. we all don't know. I heard from someone else it's going to be called the zymology zone.


Simple- Henious Hotel? Not very likely.
Think about it thought, Lemony (Daniel), do you really think he would use another H for a title? It just seems kinda lame, beside, I kinda interviewed this guy that works at a book store *whoops*


*keeps breathing* guys. Beatrice is dead. They were at a masked ball apparently when beatrice was killed. If she is indeed the mother, what the heck was she doing at a masked ball at the time of her death! Also, lemony snicket could not have married her because she was dead before they were able to be married. Please pay attention to the side stories. I'd more believe that we have not yet met mister baudelare. Nor will we ever. i think that the survivor of the fire was quigley quagmire, who tells the baudeares that he found himself in the remains of a burned home. hmm? that sound familliar? it was the passage between 667 and the mansion... I think perhaps that it has to do with the mushrooms growing on the rocks.
I found 'Lemony snicket: An unauthorised autobiography' usefull. It tells you a bit more about the story.


I wanted to tell you guys again that lemony snicket and daniel handler aren't the same person. lemony doesn't really write the books.


somthing is cool about book the 12th. it's is coming out 10-18-05! that's the day of my birthday! really!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
